Transaction? I never seen that. When do you see this come on? Does it go off or stays on all the time? I can only think of 2 things: Traction as in traction control unit goes active meaning it wont slide the rear end under power on rain or snow etc... Or I have seen an option for towing a trailer where there is a button usually at the end of the shifter lever. Both of them are ok to have a lite on, if you were to have a problem with transmission you would have the check engine light on and maybe the transmission switch light blinking. Check you owners manual for a reference of this light.
42 miles with a jaguar. First I love Jaguars. Youll get to your home by a tow truck. The car is talking to you say its sick.Here is what will happen, The TRAC, ASC, light is on okay the APP will now go to limp home mode what this mean it will default giving limited operations, youll probable just go 30mph, and that is just it. The transmission does not know what gear or how fast its going so it communicates to the powertrain it tell it I dont know what Im doing so it activates the traction control and say keep me safe the traction control say okay Ill get disable, then the transmission control tell the powertrain I could be burning up or slipping. So The APP(acclerator pedal position ) gets involved and say we will just limp on home.Remeber i love juguars so does tow trucks
You most likely have a problem with one of the ABS wheel speed sensors or the ABS unit itself. ABS and Traction Control work together in your vehicle. The system thinks that one of the wheels isn't turning and then limits the power or may even apply the brakes on the other wheels in an attempt to remedy the problem. You'll most likely need to have the system hooked up to so the sensor inputs can be checked for faults.
If you have a switch for the traction control, the stalling of the engine can be reduced or eliminated by turning off the traction control.
The traction control probably has debris inside the rear emergency brakes. The traction control works by counting the speed of each wheel. When the part that counts the speed is blocked with debris, it thinks one wheel is slipping and kills the engine and applies the rear brake to the fastest spinning side.
The motor is suppose to lose rpm until the wheelspin is stopped. Then the motor is suppose to run normally. If the motor is completely dying you have a terrible problem with the sensor on the rear wheels.
The Traction control needs to be looked at, some Brake shops may be able to fix it. A dealer would have the tools. There should be nothing wrong with the engine, its suppose to react to the sensors.
